Go ‘Hiya!’ with our super fun and easy to make Ninja Crafts for Kids, just in time for International Ninja Day! Perfect to make, play & share with friends!
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Ninjas? Maybe it’s the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or maybe it’s that ‘Hiyya’ sound they make during attack!
There are so many stories about ninjas, some real and some legends, and all the mystery contributes into making them very popular with kids! Not to mention all their alleged super powers, like invisibility and being able to walk on water!
With International Ninja Day being on 5th December, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate these nimble warriors, with some simple and easy to make ninja crafts for kids. Make these to play with, or to decorate your desk or to share with your friends!
